Thank you to the 301 people that have contributed to our Crowdfund so far. We have hit an incredible 94% of our target, but with just two days to go, can we reach our goal?
Over the past couple of months our town came together to save the trees on The Walks, and for that time we denied the developer the 61 trees they intended to fell, and caused a pause in the work, but we now want to save these trees permanently for future generations of our community to enjoy. To do this we need everyone’s help.
We believe the felling of these trees is unlawful as the trees are protected by a Tree Preservation Order from 2016. But the developer and North Northants Council have argued that the developer’s work is exempt from the TPO rules and that they can fell the trees legally. We have sought legal advice and we believe the exemption the developer is relying on does not apply and as a result the felling is unlawful and they are committing a criminal offence.
We see that the only way we can prove this is to take the case to court and seek an injunction to permanently stop the tree felling for good! This is what we plan to do and we need your help to raise the funds to do this. We aim to raise £12,000 to take the legal action we need to save the Wellingborough Walks trees, will you help us?
Donate to our Crowdfunder
Please donate what you can, small or large, and let‘s show the developer and the local council that the people of our town are not prepared to stand by and see these trees and The Walks trashed in this appalling way; and that we are determined to SAVE OUR TREES and our natural heritage for countless generations to come.
Thank you for your support 💚🌳
